Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced it has surpassed 500 installations of the Inmarsat Jet ConneX in-flight connectivity platform on large-cabin aircraft. The robust Wi-Fi solution is available on new aircraft and can be retrofitted on qualifying existing aircraft.

“Gulfstream owners expect a seamless transition from life on the ground to life on their aircraft, making connectivity essential,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “This milestone illustrates our commitment to performance with high-speed connectivity and increased productivity, allowing our aircraft to truly be offices in the skies. As the industry leader in Jet ConneX installations, Gulfstream is dedicated to providing our customers with top-of-the-line products and services.”
